Just once, I'd like to see companies actually announce how many digital UNITS of an entire game they sold instead of hiding behind "revenue" as a way to mask the fact that physical is blowing digital away.

Well altough this sounds great im pretty sure its downhill from 2016 and forward for a company that lost most of its talent.
